Featuring the best poems of one of Ireland’s most popular modern poets, this new work explores John F. Deane’s perennial themes of love—both religious and human. The title sequence traces the development of a Christian life, beginning with expectation and birth and proceeding through youth, experience, death, and rebirth. Each of the collection's 12 poems presents a movement of the spirit, from the author’s childhood in the west of Ireland, through the death of a wife, to the birth of a grandchild in Holland. Arranged in the manner of an orchestral symphony, each section focuses on a different piece of music, from Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony to Mozart's Laudate Dominum. The new poems are accompanied by pieces from Deane’s earlier work, selected and edited by Irish poetry scholar, Thomas Dillon Redshaw.

Book Depository International

Book Description Carcanet Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. John F. Deane is a vital and generous presence in Irish poetry. "New and Selected Poems" gathers work from Deane's five previous "Carcanet" collections, alongside a new sequence, "Snow Falling on Chestnut Hill". Written with an inquiring intelligence, these poems of a dozen years meditate on the relevance of Christian spirituality to our troubled times. Each of the twelve poems in the title sequence presents a movement of the spirit, from the author's childhood in the west of Ireland, through the death of a wife, to the birth of a grandchild. Arranged in the manner of an orchestral symphony, each section takes its cue from a different piece of music, from Beethoven's "Ninth Symphony" to Mozart's "Laudate Dominum". The sequence traces, phase by phase, the development of a Christian life. Faith, in its broadest sense, is inflected by imagination. Seller Inventory # AAR9781847771179
